Got a new vintage receiver in, a Sony STR-6060F, had it fully recapped.
This late 60's Sony receiver has a reputation for being tube-like, so I compared it against both a fully recapped Marantz 1060 and a Fisher KX-100 tube integrated on Vandersteen 2CE Signatures. Thought I'd post my note here:
First: Sony 6060 vs Marantz 1060:
The Marantz 1060 is more polite, a bit fuller/warmer, the bass maybe a touch stronger, and has a somewhat less forward presentation...
